The top of "Runaway Train" features a four bar intro with both of our acoustic guitars playing together. One guitar is playing a single open chord, while the other is playing some cool melodic lines. Here are some key points to help you through the intro.

1. Guitar #1 is playing an open C major chord with an eighth note rhythm. This rhythm is heard all throughout the song.

2. Guitar #2 is playing a series of sixth intervals along with some open strings, creating a descending melodic line.

3. This section is four bars long and happens only at the top of the song.
